About Us


“Authentic New York Italian Ice in the Heart of Arizona.”

Growing up in Queens, New York in a large Italian community (Howard Beach) provided me the love of heritage from which I create DeMarco’s Italian Ice & Creams. I was exposed to some of the finest Italian Ice establishments in New York, each with their unique specialities. Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn had the best Spumoni (not to mention the best Sicilian pizza.) The Lemon Ice King of Corona had the best Lemon Ice, Lyndhurst Bakery in New Jersey had the best Banana Cream, and Ralph’s of Staten Island had many unique Cream Ice flavors to choose from. My desire is to use my passion and knowledge to create a true Scottsdale original, DeMarco’s Italian Ice & Creams.


Moving to the Valley over 20 years ago, my search for my childhood dessert has led me to create a dessert everyone can enjoy. To get the true authentic taste of New York Italian Ice, we make our classics ices with the finest ingredients available – right down to our Madagascar vanilla extract we make in-house. Each batch of our Pistachio Cream Ice is made with several pounds of whole pistachios in order to obtain a rich and nutty flavor that rivals anything you’ve ever tasted. Spumoni, with its combination of chocolate, cannoli cream and pistachio, is the perfect trifecta of flavorings. Our Cream Ice contains 5% cream yet tastes like a premium homemade Ice Cream. We also feature Homemade Custard that finds its roots with the local Dairy Farmers right here in Arizona.

All Natural, Handcrafted In Small Batches

DeMarco’s Italian Ice & Creams are made using one simple philosophy: start with the finest ingredients and finish with a dessert that’ll keep you coming back for more. All our recipes, including our extracts and flavorings, are made from scratch with no artificial anything! Come and taste the difference.
